The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is HERE! One hundred years after the first Silverado was delivered in 1918, the next-generation Silverado was created with feedback from more than 7,000 customers on what they wanted in their next truck. “With the all-new Silverado, we’ve taken the best truck on the road and made it even better,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president of Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain in a press release. “It has a longer wheelbase, more passenger and cargo volume, and yet, thanks to our mixed materials strategy and mass reduction expertise, the new truck is 450 pounds lighter than the current model.” The Silverado’s grille and headlights are completely refreshed, and Chevrolet is stamped across the truck’s rear bumper.

All films are free on Runde Free Day, Thursday, April 26. See you at the fest!

black Ford Ranger pickup driving through snow
The Ford Ranger is making a comeback in 2019. The mid-size pickup truck, which was discontinued in 2011, has been re-invented inside and out. “Ranger has always held a special place in the hearts of truck fans,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president of Product Development and Purchasing, in a press release. “The all-new Ranger is designed for today’s mid-size truck buyer, delivering even more utility, capability and technology for those who blend city living with more off-the-grid adventures on the weekend.” The Ranger will come in three trims, entry-level XL, mid-level XLT, and high-level Lariat, with available Chrome and Sport appearance and FX Off-Road packages, and in [...]

Bill and Joslyn Seefeldt, of the town of Milton, WI, drove a couple hours for Runde Auto Group’s dedication to customer satisfaction. “We contacted several dealers in our neighborhood and they said it would be too hard to get the car or it wouldn’t be efficient for them to get the exchange,” Bill said. The couple got what they wanted at Runde’s: a black 2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT, with a turbocharged engine. The hatchback vehicle will be used as a work car for Joslyn, who is a farrier (which is a specialist in equine hoof care, including the trimming and balancing of horses’ hooves and the placing of shoes on their hooves). “I wanted something that was very fuel efficient because it will be a [...]

LIGHTS! Check them… all. The only thing that’s combating you from a wide, clear, range of vision is the darkness. It’s very important to make sure that the sword you are using to tear through that darkness is effective. Check all of your lights for clarity and proper functionality – head, tail, braking, turn, fog… the whole nine yards.  Slap on those hazards, get out and see if all your lights are flashing correctly. If you are without friend/human companion you can check to make sure your brake lights are working by backing up towards a reflective surface (building, window, etc.) and see if you can see your brake lights in the reflection. You may also consider getting your headlights properly aimed. Poorly aligned headlights can blind other drivers and limit your road visibility.  If you’ve had any accident damage to the front of your vehicle, it could have taken one or both of your headlights out of alignment and it’s best to get that checked.  [...]
If you noticed fireworks lighting up the western skies this past Friday, what you were probably witnessing was part of the festivities for the Annual Peosta Parade and Fun Day.   The sixth annual Peosta Days event was held in conjunction with the Annual Fireman’s Auction and the extravaganza promised something for kids of all ages. Friday’s events included the brilliant fireworks, skydivers, good food & drinks and live music featuring the band Hard Salami. On Saturday, the Peosta Days Parade took place and Doug Weig and his wife Angela were able to get some great shots of the Runde Chevrolet truck they drove in the parade.  It started at Mi-T-M and it ended up at the Peosta Rec Center. Doug said that it was a good time for everyone.   But the most intriguing event was one that I had never heard of … Cow Pie Bingo.  Doug said that he wanted to play, but it [...]
Runde’s was recently honored to have San Francisco 49ers draft pick, Darius Fleming, come in to Runde Chevrolet to pick up a smoking hot Black Camaro coupe!  Darius played for Notre Dame as an outside linebacker and is training for the 49ers currently. He found time to come from his training camp in Lake Forest, IL to pick up his Camaro from our salesman, Mark Fleege. Darius was gracious enough to let us interview him. You might be surprised by some of his unique talents and what he has in common with the movie “Rudy”! Are you originally from the area? No, I’m from the south side of Chicago.  I grew up in the Beverly area, right off of Western Ave. around 119th. Did you have a nickname growing up? My nickname was Baby-D, because I was named after my uncle.   Since his name was Darius as well, they called me Baby-D so when somebody would say “Darius” it [...]
Needless to say that this new design for the 2013 Fusion has been very well received at the Chicago Auto Show this week and people’s comments have been very favorable toward it.  The video below was shot by Runde Auto Group  — The noise in the background of the vid was coming from the new Shelby Mustang presentation across the room and we’ll post the video of that soon.  People were definitely all a-buzz about the Shelby.  But this new Fusion is definitely gorgeous. The new design is only about 1 inch longer and 1/2 inch wider than the previous Fusion, but it looks a lot longer than its predecessor mainly due to an extended wheelbase that’s almost 5 inches longer than the 2012 version.  A new inline 4-cylinder 1.6 Liter EcoBoost engine will be available on the all-new Fusion.  And this optional turbo engine will produce 179 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque and is [...]
The Chevy Camaro has been turning heads since it was first released, but now there’s an eye-catching new option. Thanks to a very creative exterior vinyl wrap, an innovative Czech Republic company has sucessfully turned one of America’s most popular modern muscle cars into an elegant, awesome, artistic spectacle. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYbBaKD0nLc] Though we may not have any chrome Camaro’s, you can still check out our great inventory at www.RundeAutoGroup.com.
Jordan Frakes & his girlfriend Lindsey Rossow visited the Runde PreDriven store in Hazel Green, WI today to pick up Jordan’s new ride.  He was forced to find a replacement for his previous car that was totalled after someone pulled out in from of him.  Jordan and Lindsey are currently students at the University of Iowa and they kindly gave me a few minutes of their time before making the trek back to Iowa City. What Brought you into Runde’s?    Jordan: I saw the car online at Cars.com and I liked what I saw so I called you guys up and scheduled a time to drive it and then we talked about the price for awhile. What car was it?   Jordan: It was a 2006 Pontiac G6 Pretty nice car there.  You purchased it from Dave Smith, right?  What did [...]
Ralph and Jane Rollins from Dubuque, IA came into Runde’s the other day to pick up their new vehicle. Both of these incredible people work at two different High Schools in Dubuque. They were nice enough to sit down with me and share their experience at Runde’s and a little bit about themselves. What brought you into Runde’s today? We found the vehicle we were looking for on the Cars.com website and it was listed at Runde’s. So we called in and got Al on the phone and now we are driving home with our new Durango. What did you think of your experience here? It was great. Al was very friendly, personable and accommodating.  He’s very passionate about his job. What would you rank your experience, overall, on a scale of 1-10? [...]
If you weren’t able to check out the latest edition of Her magazine in Dubuque’s Telegraph Herald this past Sunday, then you may have missed that Runde’s was voted as their readers’ favorite Auto Dealer. We were thrilled to learn that we had been voted #1 out of all the local car dealers, but we’re definitely not going to walk around with over-inflated egos.  We’ll continue to strive to make the car buying experience here as easy and as transparent as possible for our buyers. A big shout of “Thanks” goes out to Megan Gloss and all the folks at Her Magazine for taking the time to put the contest together and publish the results.   We’d also like to thank all of the Her readers who took the time [...]
The new 2011 Camaro Convertible arrived at Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque today and Mike Lawler in our Detail Department was kind enough to take some snap shots of the car for us.  What do you think???  Could you picture yourself flying down the highway in this black beauty?   For some of us (namely me), owning this car is just a fantasy.  But if you are in the driver’s seat of your dreams, please stop by our Chevrolet store on Hwy 35 to check out the car for yourself … and CLICK  HERE for more info about this Camaro Convertible.
Troy and April Hutson drove a long way this past week to come and buy their new truck from Runde Chevrolet.  In the time between signing paperwork and starting out for home, they were benevolent enough to give us a little extra time to ask them some questions about their lives and about their recent experience at Runde’s. What kind of vehicle did you buy?  We bought a new 2011 Silverado 2500 HD. You’re from Sandwich, IL – how far is that from Runde’s?   It’s about 180 miles and it took us almost three hours to get here. Have you always lived in that area? Troy:  I have.  I was born in Sandwich and pretty much lived there my whole life. April: I wasn’t born in Sandwich, but I’ve lived in that area most of my life.      What is Sandwich or that area of Illinois famous for or best know for? The [...]
  What did the mama turkey say to her naughty son???   If your papa could see you now, he’d turn over in his gravy!  
I haven’t seen the Ellen Show in ages, and I must admit that her show is quite amusing. She’s a natural entertainer along the lines of Jerry Springer, but her show itself is more comparable to the Oprah show in nature … Oprah-lite if you will. I ran across this on the net and thought it was kind of cool … Last week Ellen decided to give away a new 2011 Buick Regal to one of her loyal viewers. However, like most of the segments on the Ellen show, she decided to have a little fun with it first. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZVFg9hoCgQ&fs=1&hl=en_US] Now I realize that not everyone will receive a free Regal in this lifetime. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t get one the old fashion way. Runde’s in Cuba City, WI currently has a good selection of 2011 Buick Regals in stock that you can view 24/7 at www.RundeAutoGroup.com
Going about our daily business here at Runde’s, we pretty much know everyone we work with so it’s pretty obvious when a new face pops up wearing a Runde shirt. This happened again a few weeks again.  After finally figuring out that this reoccurring face was not just an extremely loyal customer who loved wearing Runde garments, we seized up the opportunity to interview our newest employee, Brian Pinch.   What do you do here at Runde’s?   I’m a sales consultant here for new Chevy vehicles.   How long have you worked here?   I’ve been here just a few weeks now.   Are you originally from the area?   I’m originally from Dubuque and lived here most of my life.  I lived in Cedar Rapids until fourth grade.   What is your best experience at Runde’s to date?   My best experience [...]
The Cruze is coming very soon and everyone (customers and employees alike) are chomping at the bit to see first hand GM’s newest jewel of the streets. But why would GM need to hire aerospace engineers to help with the car’s design? Watch and learn just how the new 2011 Cruze takes in a breath. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8No9bXWvxQ]
Today we had the pleasure of getting to know a family who recently bought a Chrysler Town & Country van from us. Sharon, Darlene, Alex, Emily and Gavin took a few moments to share their experience with us.  We give you … the Riesselman Family. How did you find Runde Auto Group and this particular vehicle? We found you guys on the internet. Your website was very easy to navigate and we easily found what we wanted. I really like how you can narrow by the year, model and mileage, it makes it really easy to find what you are looking for. Where is the first place you’ll take your new Town & Country van? Darlene: Home to see if it will fit in the garage! Sharon: Yeah. Why did you decide to purchase it [...]
We sat down this morning and had a quick chat with the highly energetic and ever-ambitious Brandon Hanger. Brandon has been working nights at Runde’s for the past four years. We were so impressed with his professional drive that we immediately added him to our sales staff. He wound up selling four new cars today and he’s already decided to put the commission money away for his retirement. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-YpT6KNq18&hl=en_US&fs=1]
